Lincoln Business Journal May 1, 2016
Lincoln is a hot job market, with plentiful jobs and high demand for workers.
Lincoln has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country an employment
remains strong in almost all key sectors, said Nate Elgert, sales manager with Aureus
Group. With an unemployment rate of 2.8 percent, employment in Lincoln is strong,
Elgert said. The job sector with the biggest increase recently has been construction,
which also is the largest job gain sector nationally. “This is a good indicator of a really
strong housing market, and with housing process continuing g to rise while inventory
remains short we can see that people continue to be able to afford to buy and build property,”
Elgert said. In addition to sustained job growth in construction, the global demand for digital
media and technology has created an explosion of opportunity, he said.
